Addressing Race at Work by The Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED)

When: Friday, May 28, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Where: Online, Zoom

The Centre for Research in Equality and Diversity (CRED) at the School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) is delighted to host this event on ‘Addressing Race at Work’.

The pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, and the Black Lives Matter movement have spotlighted the racial inequalities that persist in our societies and institutions. The recent Sewell report has done little to address convincingly these racial inequalities in Britain. How can employers move beyond awareness and statements of support for racial equality, to really tackle racial inequalities at work in a meaningful way?

Join our expert panel for a thought-provoking conversation that will explore:

  • How do we understand and disrupt systemic racism?
  • Why is a historical perspective on racial inequalities important?
  • Why is it valuable to examine the lived experience of ethnic minorities at work?
  • How do we foster meaningful conversations about race in the workplace?
  • Is unconscious bias training pointless?
  • What interventions drive real progress when it comes to racial inequalities at work/

Panel members include:

  • Dr Doyin Atewologun - Dean of the Rhodes Scholarships, Oxford University; Director Delta Alpha Psi; Academic Adviser Parker Review; CRED Associate QMUL
  • Professor Nelarine Cornelius – Professor of Organisation Studies and Associate Dean, People, Culture and Inclusion at QMUL; CIPD Vice-President, Membership and Professional Development
  • Professor Mike Noon – Professor of Human Resource Management, Dean for the School of Business and Management, QMUL
  • Alex Prestage – Head of Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, QMUL

The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr Elena Doldor, Associate Professor in Organisational Behaviour and Co-Director of CRED.

This event is open to academics and practitioners (D&I experts, senior leaders, policymakers) in the equality, diversity, and inclusion field.
